Pergola Drawing early Conceptual (3)

pergola color rendering

[This pergola rendering was shown to the client]

He didn’t like it. Not even a little. This was shot down faster than Ann Coulter would have been at a moveon(dot)org party. However there is a ray of hope for that big flat space. Ruins, yep ruins . . . . working on that drawing as we speak.


Addendum: It’s 2:42 pm EST, and I see the pic. I hope it is there . . .

By Rick Anderson

The Whispering Crane Institute was originally formed to act as the umbrella organization for the Philosophy of Design Symposium, and other seminars and workshops given by Rick Anderson and Richard L. Dube’. In the year 2000 WCI became a sole proprietorship owned by Rick Anderson. Today the WCI provides design and consultation services for Landscape Contractors, acts as a Green Industry think tank, and provides training for others in the form of workshops, seminars, and individual consulting. The WCI also provides written material, opinions, case-studies and how-to articles for industry trade magazines.


  1. no pic ;-( – sorry to hear about the rejection, still would like to see the picture if its possible to get it up – good luck on the ruins!

    Thanks for the alert, I’ve been having a few problems with linking back to my site. I’ll work on the ruins thing . . . who knows.

  2. Anne Coulter: Succubus or incubus?

    The rejection is bad news for you. But it thickens the plot for the rest of us. Maybe we’ll all learn something from this.

    Succubus or incubus? . . . Uh, I’m not sure, thanks for noticing. I hope I learn something from this also. Those on-site guys were all guessing when the gave me the info on the site. So I knew going in that it could go in many different directions.

  3. Bummer – take solice from the great Cleveland designer, Leslie Scott, who retires each evening with the prayer that ‘ O Lord, may that people with taste will get money, and people with money will get taste’

    No problem, I like the quote is a keeper:
    “O’ Lord, may that people with taste will get money, and people with money will get taste” -Leslie Scott, Cleveland Des.
